Overview, Review and How to Use Bally BASIC and "AstroBASIC" For the Bally Arcade/Astrocade Video created by BallyAlley. Video published June 21, 2017.
This is an overview of Bally BASIC (aka "AstroBASIC") with the tape interface by Astrovision Inc. This 4KB cartridge, released in 1981, is part #6004 of the Functional Series. The review covers how to use Bally BASIC/"AstroBASIC" to load programs through the 2000-baud interface.
The Bally/Astrocade Game Cartridge and Hardware FAQ says this about this BASIC: "This updated version of the Bally BASIC cartridge is notably set apart from the original because it has a built-in 2000 baud interface that connects to a standard cassette recorder; there are also some additional commands added for the programmer. It's visually different from the original release as well. This cartridge was packaged with some Astrocade consoles (these consoles were designated as Arcade Plus). Astrocade, Inc. manufactured the later releases of this. Written by Jay Fenton."
